How do we keep our iOS and Android builds organized, tested, and distributed to team members and users who need them, with the correct versions flowing into the app stores? This is DevOps for mobile apps.

Dan Hermes, Xamarin MVP and co-organizer of Boston Mobile C# Developers Group, will discuss the high points of his upcoming edX video course for Microsoft (!) on how to do all of these things using Visual Studio Mobile Center (VSMC). He will talk about developing, deploying and managing mobile applications in DevOps environments. He'll cover setup and management of VSMC and the testing and deployment of mobile apps. Mobile Center Build, Test, and Distribute are powered by Visual Studio Team System (VSTS), Xamarin Test Cloud, and HockeyApp. Learn the VSMC workflows that tie all of these tools together.

This talk is for any and all native app developers, not just C#. Many features of VSMC work for Objective-C and Java just as well as Xamarin.
